First Swim



It was you that made me fall,
off the ledge of reason…


You looked me in the eyes,
and said, The water is fine.
I became captivated by that one single line.

 
So I didn’t see the treacherous waves
before me.  Instead, I took your hand softly,

and emerged too deep…

 
That’s when I had difficulty breathing,
brutal water shoved against cheek
and you were nowhere for me to see.
 

I could not swim until that point,
when I realized I was in the water alone,
beating the fierce currents on my own.

 

See it all happened so fast,
and before it started,
I was introduced to its’ last.

 
I learnt to adapt quickly, as I begun to

form my hands, and glide my feet,

as the water clung against me like a sheet.

 
I let the waves caress the curves of me.

I pushed forth stronger until I could see…
the horizon that shined before me.
 
It was then I realized, with land in sight,

I had beat the worse that was coming to me,

I just needed to stand up on my own two feet.
